Broken Hope and Deicide had a falling out two weeks ago when Broken Hope was kicked off Deicide's tour. Broken Hope chose to take this news by rposting an online message (since removed) shitting all over Deicide founder Glen Benton. A few days later, Deicide's Glen Benton basically said Broken Hope were unprofessional. It seems everything has been settled and both bands decided to bury the hatchet and put friendship before the drama!
In a statement released by Broken Hope through their PR company via Facebook, it seems as though everything is smooth sailing once more for the two groups:
A note from BROKEN HOPE:
BROKEN HOPE and DEICIDE have reached out to each other, have made apologies, and mended their friendship after the debacle at the end of the NO SALVATION TOUR.
Glen Benton, Shaun Glass, and Jeremy Wagner have been good friends for 20 years and the blow-up in El Paso was completely unnecessary and the situation could have been rectified if all parties talked it out as friends. Moreover, there were some very low-blows lobbed in an effort to maim Glen Benton, and a number of those words were very unfair and very immature, so to that end, we apologize.
That said, both bands have extended olive branches to each other in order to retain their longtime friendships, and to rise above all the worthless drama, finger-pointing, and scandalous fallout that’s plagued both bands.
We’re glad to once again have Benton’s friendship and to have DEICIDE as brothers. FRIENDSHIP and MUSIC are ALL that matters here.
We ask all fans to please embrace our effort to revive our friendship with Glen and DEICIDE, and as we all take a higher, more positive road.
It's a nice statement and all, but I'm noticing that Deicide and Glen Benton haven't said anything about the issue just yet despite Broken Hope saying they've buried the hatch with them. Then again, in Benton's initial comments he did say he's not really mad or anything and would just like an apology, which is exactly what happened here. So, we can all move on now.
